My Ryzen 7 3800x is running on max speed even when idling, and idle temps arpund 55. It started to happen only recently, before it was idling around 40 or lower, so thats not normal. I think it also cause some other issues- my taskbar constantly freezes randomly. It only happens when I don't use it and leave it running for some time (ussually from 1 hour to 3 hours). Taskbar freezes, does not updat time ond i cant hower my mouse over it. Next thing is when it freezes, and i decide to unplug, for example a mouse, and plug it back in it doesn't work at all. So thats that. I tried a lot of things, and non of them seem to work. If annyone needs my pc specs:

Ryzen 7 3800x with stock cooler

msi mpg b550 gaming edge wfi

Samsung 970 evo plus 1tb

Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz

Check power plans in windows, should be Balanced. Not Performance.

Windows just had a Major update, that tends to make some stuff kinda whacked. Windows settings being common changes.

Try opening a CMD with Admin then type in :
Sfc /scannow
When that's finished :
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
